What are you eating Saturday 9/15/2018?

I have Broccoli Aglio e Olio (With Garlic and Olive Oil) over Veggie (Barilla zucchini and spinach spaghetti) spaghetti.

But things can change at a moments notice. LOL

I'm defrosting a pre-seasoned rack of baby backs and will cook them using the Alton Brown oven method. Baked beans and a salad for sides.

I'm doing a version of Ratatouille, only with ground beef added to make it a one dish meal tonight. We'll have garlic toast too.
I love all the vegetable ingredients and debating if I should make meat balls instead of loose meat. Hmmm...depends on how much time I want to spend.

Himself is off for a night of star-gazing and I'm not waiting for him! I'm nibbling on salad now, will follow it up with a hot ham-and-Muenster cheese sandwich on toasted Kaiser roll. He'll have the same after he gets home.

I spent enough time and I went the loose meat option. The seasonings were basil/thyme/coriander/oregano and crushed fennel seed, with a splash of balsamic vinegar. I was careful to not over cook the classic Ratatouille veggies and they stayed crisp tender. The addition of ground beef with a few shell pasta in the mix worked out really well.

I wish the picture was as good as it tasted.

That looks yummy. Great idea to add ground meat. I used to enjoy ratatouille once in a while, but DH hates it. He dislikes zucchini and eggplant more than I do. I'm not fond of them, but I find that they work well in ratatouille. Oh, forgot, he's also not a fan of tomato that isn't cooked a whole lot.

Both of us are low on spoons, so we haven't been cooking much. Tonight I made a salad and DH heated some pasta sauce; fried some sliced Italian sausage; and served it with fettuccine. Making the salad and washing a few dishes wiped me out. But, it was a very enjoyable supper. I forgot my phone upstairs, so I didn't get any pix.

You made me laugh Taxi. I guess you two would pick at my dinner, and find a place to eat on the way home.

I would happily eat your dinner. DH, not so much, but he would probably politely eat it.
